Fortismere Community Choir started in 2009 and is an unauditioned choir. We welcome those with and without musical experience, who have a desire to sing with like-minded people.
We are particularly looking for tenors and basses. If you are interested in joining us (even if you are unsure which voice you are) you are welcome to attend one or two rehearsals without obligation. As a regular member, we would ask you to pay a small subscription (£56 per adultor £39 per student) per term in order to cover costs.
The choir meets at Fortismere School every Saturday in the music block in north wing, from 10.30am to 1.00pm during school terms.
At present, we perform a light repertoire at Christmas, a Sacred Work with orchestra at Easter and light repertoire for the Fortismere Summer Fair. There are also several other performance opportunities over the year, including carol singing and collaborations with other instrumental groups.
Our past repertoire has included the Requiems of Mozart, Faure, and Durufle, as well as Mozart's Coronation Mass and Gabrieli's Hodie Christus Natus Est. The choir frequently collaborates with Fortismere Community Orchestra.
The choir has a steering committee and an active social network. Relaxed but supportive home-based sectionals, picnics, parties and tours have all helped to create a friendly atmosphere at rehearsals and events. We are proud to be part of the community that is Fortismere Music Centre, which brings neighbours, teachers and pupils together to create high-calibre music.
